Manchester United manager Eric ten Hag boasts that his team has found the mentality and character to win. After scoring the winning goal at the end of the game, they beat Aston Villa 2-1.

“It is an important victory for us. We are getting closer and that is today’s goal. That was our goal and we did it. The way we did it, I liked it. I especially liked the first 20 minutes where we controlled the game. At 1-1 we fought back and we’re happy today.

“At 1-1, you have to see how the game goes. And I think it’s very intense. And you can see that there are many players who are tired towards the end. It’s an open game. And it can go both ways. But we found the mentality and character to overcome. The substitutes also made an impact.”

“Scott (McTominay) was great, he scored a lot of goals. He was always in positions to score. We had problems, it was too much like a tennis game. We had problems on the counter-attack, we knew Scott could get into the box and score goals.” ufabet https://ufabet999.app

Talk about substituting Luke Shaw at half time. “It’s protection. He said it hurt. And we can’t take any chances with him. Because he had been injured before. We’ll have to see how it goes in the next few days. Losing him is not a good thing. Everyone knows my philosophy of having left-footed players play at left centre-back and left-back. We have to be careful and it is not good for us.”
